I worked at Jack in the Box

Pros

Easy work
You can move up quickly

Cons

At the store I worked in, there were several times I found bugs flying in the mayonnaise, when I brought it up to management the problem was never solved.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on really training your down line, from the GM to the supervisors just because it's fast food doesn't mean the business can't show integrity

    Pros

    JIB has some great benefits available, and if you like to keep busy this is definitely the place for you. It can be fun if you're creative at the window. Started with an awful manager, got a fantastic one later.

    Cons

    Lots of hard work, and a lot of your coworkers won't care about what they do. Management doesn't always respect you, or care about your life. They just want theirs to be easier for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've known some pretty dreadful managers. Get rid of them.

    I worked at Jack in the Box part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -They started me out about 20 cents above minimum wage.
    -Learned some of the fast food business' tactics and techniques to help with future jobs.

    Cons

    -Useless tasks were always assigned to the cooks when we were very busy. Portioning French Fries? Really? That's one of the many unnecessary tasks assigned daily.

    -No clear direction of the company. From the time I started to 8 months later when I quit, things got changed around more than I can count. It seemed like upper management would change things around just to make our lives more difficult.

    -Management didn't care about anything, especially people beneath them. Good luck trying to get days off in advance. If it conflicted with any of the other 48 people working there's schedule, or they just didn't feel like taking you off the schedule, you will be working that day. The managers will constantly tell you how slow you are and how you don't know how to do some things (even though they don't bother training you).

    -Training? Yeah right. I watched an hour of some stupid video about food safety, and the next day I was there on the fryer, trying to figure it out by myself. They put me on the cash register for a while, and never taught me how to count the drawer.

    -No set schedule. Some weeks they would schedule me for 8 hours, and the next I would be working 20. I would work from 5pm-10pm some days, and the next it would be 6am-2pm. It was very unpredictable.

    -You will work under constant threats of being fired. I remember when corporate came into our location once and everyone freaked out because they've fired people on the spot for saying the wrong sentence when they ask "What is your job?" People will talk behind your back and you will get write ups for their lies, without even being confronted about it. You will be threatened that if you break something, YOU will have to pay for it out of pocket.

    I could go on and on, but you get the idea. DO NOT WORK HERE.
